A record set in November 2006 of 10,113 megawatts still stands.

    The Arab Center for the weather and climate have reported low advent of air accompanied by several cold air fronts will bring rains at the beginning of the precipitation turned to snow later.
    The Center said that the rainfall swept most parts of Damascus and turned precipitation to snow with the knowledge that it was unexpected, pointing to continued cold weather tomorrow, especially at night, warning form frost in the interior areas of the mountainous highlands, which would apply to the capital Damascus, with expectations to reach the night temperature to -2

    Reader’s comment: The MSM reports a lot about the civil war in Syria, especially about the fighting in Aleppo, but this news about unexpected snowfall (even the word snowstorm is mentioned) in Damascus is not being reported.
